his clown for mocking mr. obama. how did the media react to this? >> on the panel this week rider and fox news contributor judy miller. jim bicker, fox news contributor allen combs. fox news watch is on right now. >>> the american people really don't know what this law is all about. i've tried to figure it out. you know, you've tried to figure it out. you've worked on it every day and the president has. they change the law on the run which is utterly unconstitutional. >> mark levine talking with fox's kneel cavuto earlier this week about the complexities about confusion. that obama care is a mess. are they picking up on it? >> yeah. it reminds me of the catastrophic care act of 1988 which was repealed in 1989, but fortunately unline president bush 41, president obama has the media on his sign. that clip from chris cuomo was a pretty indicative thing. paul bremer at news busters documented a lot more of this. he's got a bodyguard around him. >> alan? >> look, the washingt"washingto has followed obama care. the fact is they've showed maps. this notion that the mainstream media, i.e.
at what's happening funding the government you have obama care changes about to kick in. they are suffering. we found out as you know, steams you about exemptions congress got because of the obama care ruling. you're right. most americans can't take a vacation. most americans are working part time trying to make ends meet. a lot of americans are pushed onto food stamps. to see that type of picture, that's a horrible optic. >> what i don't get. it's hard to get access to the president, hard to get pictures. i post on greta wire, most the president out at the golf course here but they never see him. they are holding someplace. it's hard when the president is having private time with his family or golfing we get pictures. this would have to have been worked out so they could get it. wouldn't you think they would think the last thing he wants is for the american people to see him doing this. of course he's playing golf but to get caught on camera. >> that's what leadership is. when i was a leader, "it was always how do you want your soldiers to see you? you don't want soldie
>>> it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five"." obama care exchanges will open for business two months from today and the administration is scrambling even though the bill was signed into law over 40 months ago. nobody seems to want a part of the bill including people in his own administration. today the head of the irs dedicated to much of the oversight said he doesn't want to participate. >> why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the law that you are attached to enforce? >> i don't want to speak -- i can speak for myself. i can stay with the current policy i am pleased with rather than going through a change if i don't need to go through a change. >> at the white house carney asked about staffers who don't want to have to live under obama care and are trying to get out of it. >> i think this is something that i would refer you to congress on. we are clearly about the business of implementing the law that congress wrote and passed. >> his own people don't want it like it is cooties. >> these people have the best health care coverage in america, people in ad
obama holds a nearly hour-long press conference and makes some big news on the country's surveillance programs. also, tonight, the president defends obama care and slams republicans for hating on it but not having much of a plan of their own. and one of the most powerful women in the world is opening up about her very recent and surprising run-in with racism. i will tell you oprah winfrey's incredible story. melissa harris perry will put it into context. all that is ahead. >>> tonight we begin with president obama's news conference in which we took on obama care and the threat by some republicans to try to shut down the government over it when they have no alternative plan. we'll get to that soon. but one area where president obama was really engaged today was the issue of surveillance and the national debate that has arisen, particularly since edward snowden leaked classified information. the president today describing four steps he would take to make the nsa both more transparent and more accountability including working with congress to tighten the patriot act, making sure someone
that really is affordable and that really will take care of everybody. >> republicans want to repeal obama care, so they go back to a situation where there's no cap, but there will be a cap. >> no way to compromise with these people. we don't want to conciliate with the democrats. we want to beat them. that's what republican voters are telling republicans. >>> so compromise or fight? what is the best strategy for republicans? good evening, sir. >> good evening. how are you doing? >> nice to have you. i know you're not a big fan of obama care. do you think that now is the time to compromise and work out some wrinkles, or is it time now to fight it for you? >> i think it's time for us to continue to fight it, because factually, this policy simply doesn't work. it's too big, 2,000-plus pages. a regulatory environment that may include over 30,000 pages. it's too complicated. you do not get to keep the insurance that you like. you break the intimate relationship between a doctor and a patient. and it's too expensive. it started out $900 billion. in 2009, it went to $1.8 trillion and perhaps eve
thwarted over the last ten years under president bush and under president obama where our intelligence community has saved lives and kept people out of harm's way. there's been a few misses like boston or benghazi where things we should have known or should have done, we made huge mistakes in benghazi when it came to protecting our ambassador and the consulate. but in the grand scheme of things with regard to the things we've been able to do in the intelligence world in stopping threats, it's been very successful. >> so you brought up benghazi. do you think that's why we're so proactive in getting this resolves right now? they could afear to be soft targets to al qaeda operatives. >> i hope it's part of the reason. like i said before, this threat is much more specific than anything we had going into benghazi. benghazi, we should have known because it was the anniversary of 9/11 and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that an embassy in benghazi is the day that the bad guys like to take a pop shot at us. that was a no-brainer and we left our ambassador vulnerable in my opinion. t
the guy who was >>> jay leno is here to tell us about the interview he just did with president obama. >> so over the last few weeks i've been visiting towns all across the country. >> president obama is on the road again. >> talking about what we need to do to secure a better bargain for the middle class. >> president obama just touched down in phoenix. >> hello, phoenix! >> greeting the president at the airport will be arizona governor jan brewer. >> the same jan brewer who last year greeted the president -- >> you can never -- >> with a now infamous finger wag. >> today is part of a summer push by the white house. >> billing it as a major policy speech. >> trying to tout the recovery of the u.s. housing market. >> our housing market is beginning to heal. >> the housing plan has something for everyone. >> let's invest in affordable rental housing. >> something for renters and new buyers. >> he's going to propose something that has bipartisan support. >> private lending should be the backbone of the housing market. >> reducing the government risk in fannie and freddie. >> i know that
. the department of justice when president obama came in, had a respected career u.s. attorney who was put in charge of investigating this, we're here nearly five years later, and the justice department refuses to release that report because it exonerates attorney general gonzalez and the bush white house of any attempt to bring politics to bear on the removal of nine u.s. attorneys for what were good and justifiable reasons. >> if they won't do that when it's an issue involving the previous administration, because they don't want to remove the cloud over attorney general gonzalez over those of us who were accused of being involved in a political effort to remove u.s. attorneys, do you have any confidence at all the attorney general would appoint a special prosecutor that would get to the bottom of this? no, i don't. >> the wrongfulness of failure to release that can't drive us completely. and the problem is, there's so many allegations of political political overtones in this. congressman levin submitted in washington post. but there's so many allegations they claim, that there's the targ
deal. what about the obama administration's big push to paint real problems as phony scandals? >> this administration is the least transparent in history. they're making it very clear that what they said they don't do. they deny, they deceive, they delay. >> whether it's about the attacks in benghazi and the talking points or revelations about conduct at the irs. the attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed. >> this has to stop. this is not a scandal. this is a national security failure where four brave americans died and we're doing nothing to bring the people to justice to understand how it failed. >> all of these scandals, he calls them they're not distraction, they're real. they detract from the reality of what happened to the country on the policies. >> fireworks over obama care because the price tag is going higher. some leading republicans pushing a new effort to fund the law entirely as we get more bad news on how much it will cost. it's hurting the people, the jobs, the 40-hour workweek. there is bipartisan agreement that this isn't working. if we can't fight
law for the surge in part-time workers? brenda, this is another unfortunate example of how obama care will hurt real workers in the real economy. it will lead to lower wage growth, lower economic growth, and more part-time jobs being created as we saw in the most recent job reports at the expense of full-time jobs. welcome to part-time jobs. this is a dismal result. susan, are you convinced? >> no, not at all. there are a couple of ceos who have said they're going to shift to part-time workers but a report that came out, 75% said it would have no impact on their hiring plan. when you see the data you always see a huge uptick in part-time workers. the real problem is we haven't had a real economic recovery like we need to. >> even the irs chief says he doesn't want to change his insurance. a lot of employers must be looking at this and saying why do we need to. >> i'll tell you what, brenda. i'd agree with susan if it was just a couple ceos, but it's not. it's ceos and let's see just off the top of my head, subway, white castle, hardee's, local communications, long beach. the numbers a
obama versus the liberal media. it is true, this is a battle going on today. and the most heart warming photo of the day, a marine comes to the rescue of a 9-year-old boy. we're going to tell you what happened in tonight's shout out. >>> our third story out front, russia's crack down on gays. there's been a lot of international pressure on this, but they said today that the country isn't bowing to it. they will not suspend anti-gay laws during the olympics. anyone that goes to the olympics sochi could be arrested and deported if they're gay. >> speed skater trains in his event physically and mentally. the only gay athlete known to be planning to compete in the games. >> i would say i'm a little bit worried. >> reporter: not afraid despite the risk. he is well aware of russia's intolerance of gays and lesbians. and they find any people who express any support of gays. the police have the power to arrest anyone who appears to be spreading, quote, prop began that of nontraditional relations." russias supports minister and a prominent lawmaker say the new law will be enforced. >> what kind
. >> we start this hour with a fox news alert. less than two hours away from president obama's first formal solo news conference since april, a look for you in the white house. reporters expected to pepper him with questions about his decision not to meet with russian president vladimar putin and the administration's continued use of the controversial talking point. i am jamie colby. >> and i am greg jarret. >> they are focusing on law makers wasting time and attention on phony scandal instead of the people's work. >> to often over the past two years, washington took its eye off of the ball. they have allowed political postural and phony scandal to distract from our economy and growing middle-class. >> fox news poll find that people do not agree with the president. the interest in the benghazi terrorist attack is anything but phony and not phony to voters, nsa snooping on americans. and the justice department seizing telephone records and irs targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny. host of power play on fox news live. chris, you have written your insightful and provocative
been killed within the last 24 hours. president obama made a statement on the deteriorating situation from martha's vineyard earlier today. >> the united states strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by egypt's interim government and security forces. our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. as a result, this morning, we notified the egyptian government that we are canceling our biannual joint military exercise which was scheduled for next month. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future, but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in. >> bob, that was president obama earlier today. you worked at the state department. dealt with a lot of different crises over your time there and have watched many. is the president just caught between a rock and a hard place here and did he put himself in this position? >> i don't think he put himself in a position. it is a rock and hard place. interesting thing he
their obama care draft cards. of course, there is no such thing as an obama care draft card. you've got to print your own out and pretend and burn that. what if i told you the science behind it might change the world and help save the planet at the same time? a full discussion of the future of food is coming up. but we begin tonight with breaking news in the middle east north africa and southeast asia where 19 u.s. embassies and consulates are closed tonight due to continued fears of an imminent terror attack. >> we face an ongoing threat from al qaeda and its affiliates. there are individuals and organizations out there that are focused on doing the united states and the american people harm as well as doing harm to our people. >> the embassy and consulate closings span across 21 countries where initially announced on friday along with a worldwide travel alert to u.s. citizens abroad. today, jay carney did his best to hold specifics, but he did confirm the threat is coming from the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. and the u.s. took the extraordinary step to close the embassies after
july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
president obama's birthday on sunday and iran is installing a new president on sunday. they don't think it's related to either of those. the information is that it's related to ramadan and that's why the embassies will be shutting down. >> tracie, thank you very much. >>> defying the request from the u.s., russia has granted edward snowden temporary asylum. the self-professed nsa leaker got the proper documents to leave. he is in an undisclosed location this morning. and while it might help the former contractor this morning, jim aceda is joining us. what are the implications for what has happened with the whole snowden scenario? >> reporter: good morning, betty. the snowden situation has strained difficult relations between the united states and russia. the u.s. does see the snowden asylum as a slap in the face really. the question now is how far is the obama administration willing to go to embarrass putin by boycotting the g 20. obama and putin plan to have one-on-one talks in moscow before the g-20. the white house is hinting to cancel that. he spent his first night in freedom as an off
we think these people are sitting there eating ho-hos -- >> for the last year and a half the obama administration keep saying things are getter in just a million -- >> it lags. >> how long in, a decade? >> hopefully as soon as we get out of the -- >> help me out here. >> loopholes in the system. the guy in michigan who won the lottery, won $2 million, and all of his money had been tied up in investments so because of that and because his income didn't register properly he was able to access food stamps. so so many people have their satellite tv and big screen tv and high-end amen it ins -- ameants and still accessing wood stamps. >> according to the odd it for, 1% fraud. >> we're very good friends. >> we are. >> where the world is there 1% waste and fraud? >> fraud in terms of people cashing in food stamp benefits for something else. >> a lot more people than that accessing the benefits -- >> there's a lot of people using it as a part of the culture of dough people dense -- dependency. this is supposed to be a temporary fix for people out the trying to get a job, pounding the pavem
a majority of americans can agree on except this. washington stinks. president obama's approval rating plum sed. 82% think the lawmakers deser s deserve to take off the month of august. congress is never popular. washington doesn't rate well on the popularity scale. people tend to personally like their own congressman. the reports we are getting back is that this time it could be different. i wanted to ask you, do you think some of the incumbent are in trouble? >> i talked to democratic campaign committee who handles the house. the average rating of approval for members of the house is about 88% or 89%. 70% now. i think the idea of a safe incumbent -- when i was in the business if you had an incumbent very rare they lose. if a wave hits, if a big issue comes along a lot of people who think they are safe will be in trouble. >> anything we are learning in august 2013 tell us something about what will happen in mid term of november 2014. because president obama's numbers are not good now it's hard to get those back up. and then if you take the fact that most incumbents lose seats from their pa
is because the checks are in place. >> really? that was president obama reassuring americans that the national security agency was not listening to your phone calls or reading your e-mails. there is a bombshell new report directly challenging those claims and revealing that yes, according to an audit, it was snooping on you and eavesdropping on thousands of conversations. host of power play on fox news.com. chris, look. some of this was unattended and accidental but significant intrusions according to the audit were not accidental and equally disturbing was the effort not to report it and to cover it up. and a further effort to keep the judges and supposed to be supervising this completely in the dark. how troubling for this is president obama? >> big time. he is trying to be flip and he gave the first interview on the tonight show for goodness sake. we don't domestically spy. he waived away the concerns. the situation there is a growing coa ligon the left and right is concerned of the existence of the programs or of the misuse of the programs and what we saw reported in the
to the american people. >> the white house says it's considering whether president obama should meet one on one with president putin at the g 20 summit in russia this year. lawmakers from both political parties want even tougher action than that, more on that part of the story coming up. first to the fox report correspondent jonathan hunt in the "america's newsroom." what is next for edward snowden. >> now is he literally free to move about the country of russia as a refugee as russia has now officially labeled him. is he entitled to government housing, he might also get a hotel room and rent an apartment according to his lawyer who said today, quote: he now is one of the most sought after men in the world. the issue of security is very important to him: snowden himself in a statement thanking the russian government and said over the past 8 weeks we have seen the obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law but in the end, the law is winning. so, for now, harris, edward snowden's home is somewhat ironically a country not exactly known as a paragon of individual libert
snowden has been granted temporary asylum by moscow. now the white house is cancelling president obama's planned talks with his russian counterpart. president obama and putin were expected to sit down and discuss among other things serious on going civil war. the kremlin said it is disappointed by the cancellation. the decision was reportedly unanimous by the president's national security team. the political standoff between the two nations rekindles a debate you might recall between mitt romney and president obama during the 2012 campaign. >> this is to russia. this is without question our number one geopolitical poe. they fight every cause for the world's worst actors, the idea he has month more flexibility in mind for russia is very troubling indeed. >> governor romney, i'm glad that you recognize that al qaeda is a threat because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing america, you said russia. not al qaeda. you said russia. and in the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. you know, the cold war has been over for 20 y
altogether. obama administration is going to make sure that you have to include people with preexisting conditions, that guaranteed a gigantic increases. it's going fall off the tracks and crash. >> neil: julie, didn't have to be a rocket scientist or dr. kildare to figure out guaranteeing coverage for preexisting conditions or having your kids on the policy until they are 80 or something like that was going to result in higher premiums. so why this shock, this response? >> first, and foremost, to look at this, premiums have been going up at the slowest rate in the past decade. that is one. two, if you live in new york and california, premiums are set to fall by 50% in new york city next year after obamacare goes into effect. >> neil: you honestly believe that? >> wake up. read the "new york times". [ laughter ] >> neil: okay. it's the "new york times." >> cut in half by next year? >> there is no data for that. that is a claim by the obama administration. >> no, it's not. >> they claimed they were going to go down between 2010 and 2012. >> new york has all the conditions that obamacare
say, what is your positive replacement for obama care. they will have zero answer. >> that's not true. i've had an answer. >> they don't have a product to sell. >> it's not a bad thing at all. >> they are not rehabilitating. they a they are retrenching. >> i don't know why senator paul's so out of whack about this. >> the party's big enough for both of us. >> a healthy family debate is not a bad thing at all. >> i worked on my hair a long time and you hit it. >>> we've got a lot to get to today as egypt's interim cabinet met to discuss a way forward following bloody days of conflict. first, president obama heads to new york and pennsylvania to promote education as an engine of economic growth. he's not the only one hitting the road in the days ahead. chris crossing the country to build support for a plan to defund oak care by shutting down the government. it may still be obvious, but the fall drama is already under way. that shutdown scheme is striking fear in the heart of republican leader who is have come to grips with the fact that it won't score any political points and that time
the loud and aggressive demands by tea party to defund obama care even if that means shutting down federal government. you've probably seen the heated debates, including robert pittenger. this is the town hall story we already know about, events like that. a much different town hall story may be taking place, one that hasn't gotten much attention. how immigration reform is playing back home. the comprehensive overhaul package providing citizens after establishing strict new border control passed senate with a bipartisan majority in june. it looks like it would have the votes to pass the house, but only if republican leadership lets it come to a vote, which so far has been completely out of the question. a big reason for that, fear among republicans that letting it pass will trigger an angry back lash from the conservative base which gets to that other story it's developing from the town halls. so far at least, the loud tea party protests have been about obama care funding. they have not been about immigration. this comes even as several republican members of congress use town hall meetings
again when it comes to delayy obama care is being the employe mandate and now the president has personally intervened to allow the government to continue helping members of congress and their staff when it comes to paying their premiums. members of congress were furious they would soon be forced to pay thousands of dollars -- >> hold on. members of congress, harold, were furious that they were going to be held to this same law that they passed, right? >> odd. >> it is odd. >> they got so angry. >> a lot of odd things. >> the president goes up to see the democrats this week. what is the first thing they're yelling at him about? >> what about my premiums? >> you mean we're going to have to live by the laws that we passed on the american people? >> we're going to have to worry about the same things our constituents are forced to worry about, please? >> they take their vacations -- >> five weeks. >> usually when things are just like happening they leave. they would soon be forced to pay thousands of dollars in additional costs through obama care's insurance marketplace. some warned
party groups were being bad. in 2010, at about the time the irs began this targeting, president obama on at least four occasions specifically suggested that these were front groups for foreign operations. david axlerod, his close consultant, made that allegation directly and so did numerous others. president obama called it a problem to democracy and then upped it to a threat to democracy. when you have your leaders putting that kind of thing out there, when you have senator baucus and senator schumer and senator merkley and senator shaheen and several other democratic senators writing to the irs saying, these groups are dangerous, you need to investigate them. what do you think the irs is going to do? they are people. they see this. they know these are powerful people saying these groups are a threat to democracy. you need to get them. that's the real scandal. not a smoking gun. >> then, you have to take it to the next chapter. now that they have gotten caught with their pants down, now that they have been caught targeting, now, what's the explanation for the leader? what's the cultu
on "fox news sunday" the senator blaming president obama's foreign policy. >> the only american policy that i can think of that president obama is practicing is that, one, he's not bush. second, that the united states is withdrawing. we are withdrawing. and when you do that and when you say that, then things get a lot worse than they are. >> live with the news tonight in washington, steve, the embassy in yemen remains closed. why is that significant? >> well, we don't know if there's an actual threat there or what kind of a threat. we do know yemen's a stronghold of the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. president obama says that branch of al qaeda continues to pose a serious threat to americans. but the president's critics say he's been understating the overall terrorist threat. >> you can't say on the one hand you have destroyed, quote, core al qaeda. by the way, that is semantic gymnastics which is remarkable. you can't say that and at the same time have to close embassies and consulates all over the middle east. look, al qaeda's on the rise. they have been on the rise. they have co
through the end of the month. no word on how long the embassy closures will last. president obama will continue to be briefed. he's playing a round of golf today. we're told he was updated before he left to do that. state department officials are urging anyone who might be considering traveling overseas to log onto their website first. >> thanks so much for that. joining me right now nbc news counter terrorism michael lighter who are ran the counter terrorism center during the bush and obama administration and also the point man inside the white house on threats like this. michael with a welcome to you and your experience, what type of threat would cause such massive closures? >> good morning. this is different from what a lot of threats looked like. it's very fragmented information you have to piece together. you're not sure if there's anything there. this is really much more specific. there's an actual threat coming from al qaeda. they don't know exactly where it is. in that sense they can take protective measures immediately for the embassy and travel alert. the question will b
. >>> later today, president obama meets with a group of lawmakers who don't like what's happening in the nsa, the white house is defending the agency's controversial domestic surveillance programs even as new information leaks about the nsa's ability to monitor everything you do online. >> reporter: the obama administration under attack for its surveillance programs. national security agency director keith alexander heckled. >> i don't trust you. >> i haven't lied to congress. >> reporter: while congress questions is the nsa spying on us? and who is accountable for edward snowden's leaks? >> anyone offered to resign from this? >> reporter: the administration declassified more documents in an effort to show that the surveillance is vital to national security even as a new article by glenn greenwald unveiled new information from snowden. greenwald said it proves that nsa can see everything you can do. >> with no overnight, no supervision, prior to search, enter an ip address, they can discover your internet connections. >> i sitting at my desk certainly had the authority to wiretap anyone. >>
for drug traffickers. >>> there's been new criticism of president obama in his handles of russian president vladimir putin. some republicans say it's not enough. danielle lee joins us live from washington with details. >> reporter: the overwhelming message out of washington, is that president obama needs to be careful as he tries to strike a balance, restoring the public trust and protecting national security. while vacationing on martha's vineyard, president obama couldn't escape a moment of frustration on the golf course. back in washington, more troubles await the commander in chief. lawmakers are criticizing the president's plan. >> he has failed to explain the programs which are lawful, which have saved lives. >> we need to do better in educating our public. >> reporter: the former director of the nsa, said that added oversight could -- >> you need to be careful how many processes you put in there. >> reporter: the leaks seem to have pushed u.s./russia relations to a post cold war low. president obama has canceled a meeting with russian president vladimir putin, originally scheduled fo
